For a whipped topping that is lighter than the average whipped cream yet not full of "fake" ingredients, I've been making this light whipped topping by whipping my cream and folding in Greek yogurt. It cuts the fat down and tastes delicious!
If you prefer to use whipped topping, go for it or if you want to have this for breakfast I say just top it with vanilla yogurt. But for dessert – I wouldn't change a thing! Hope you try this, you will LOVE it!!

For the Lighter Whipped Topping: (makes 1 1/2 cups)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
- 2 2/3 cups diced pineapple (fresh or canned)
- 2 2/3 cups jarred mandarin oranges, drained
To make the lighter whipped cream, place a metal mixing bowl and metal beaters of a hand mixer into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the sugar into the mixing bowl and add the whipping cream. Using a hand mixer, beat just until the cream and vanilla reaches stiff peaks, about 2 - 3 minutes. Fold in the Greek yogurt.
Top each with 3 tablespoons of whipped cream.
